SXSW Report - Day One

Posted by Ezra Ace Caraeff on Wed, Mar 17, 2010 at 11:43 PM


Day One - SXSW 2010

Total Number of Bands Seen:
Six. Those Darlins, Toro y Moi, Okkervil River & Roky Erickson, Vadoinmessico, Rose Elinor Dougall, and High on Fire.
Total Number of Tacos Consumed:
Three. Including an unfortunately named "Dirty Sanchez" taco from Torchy's. I felt ashamed ordering it.
Notable Shows That I Was Unable to See:
Plenty. I couldn't get into Broken Bells, Billy Bragg, or Hunx and His Punx. Plus, due to some scheduling confusion, I missed both jj and Best Coast.
Overall Drunkeness (on an Aaron Meshian scale of 0-100)
71 (OMG, the same score as Remember Me). Too drunk too drive, yet not drunk enough to eat an unnecessary slice of pizza on the walk back to the hotel room.

For the rest of the SXSW report, head on over to End Hits.
